- We can order this
Following the success of her first book, Yes, Please. Thanks! mum and author Penny Palmano, This Morning's Mrs. Manners, is back with this comprehensive guide to raising teenagers.
After her fair share of parenting, Penny Palmano decided to tackle what she saw as an epidemic of bad manners, and wrote a guidebook on teaching good manners to children. The book, Yes, Please. Thanks!, touched a nerve and has become a bestselling sensation.
Yes, Please. Whatever! takes you, the parents, to the next stage and teaches you how to avoid the pitfalls of teenagers and all the problems specific to that age group from hormonal fluctuations and untidiness to dating. Penny shows you how to build mutual respect with your teenagers, the foundation stone for good behaviour and a good relationship.
The book also includes first hand advice on teaching your teenager how to deal with siblings, relationships, exams, stress, food, money, part-time jobs, drinking, paying compliments, how to behave in public and with friends and even advice on how to teach them to pour wine. The result is that your teenager will be totally prepared in all life and social skills when they finally leave home.

"We are in an age where manners and polite behaviour seem to be consigned to history - this book is a breath of fresh air." - General Secretary, NAHT (National Association of Head Teachers)
"Tip of the Week - Finally, a suggestion that may make life a little easier. If you are living with teenagers there is excellent advice on offer in `Yes, please. Whatever!' Many Parenting Cafe contributors are fans of Ms Palmano's common sense and workable ideas on how to smooth a path through family life." - Saturday Telegraph.
"Penny Palmano who wrote a bestselling book on children's behaviour and manners last year has turned her attention to teenagers for her new book, "Yes, please. Whatever!" "You can't get away with treating them the same way that you have for the previous twelve years, they are becoming young adults," says Ms Palmano. Not that she has been a pushover confirms her 17 year old son Sam. "She's caring, and she encourages me and gives me my own space, but she means what she says. I have friends whose parents view children and adults as completely different species. They seem to think that until you are 21 you don't have opinions that count." - Daily Telegraph
Praise for Yes, Please. Thanks!
"Mum and author, Penny Palmano writes a book called, 'Yes, please. Thanks!' And all hell breaks loose. Do I welcome a book on good manners for children? Absolutely." - Vanessa Feltz in the Daily Express.
